Chateau La Cardonne 2001 (review)

87 points

Medoc, Bordeaux. Cru Bourgeois. 13%

A very nice claret. Medium concentration. Enjoyable now. Has a warmth about it that is missing in some 2001 Bordeaux, and is also less tannic. A very well made approachable claret, traditional yet with modern clean winemaking.

A bargain (at least in the Geneva supermarket where I bought it).
